Holy Public School

After watching the evolution of Public School on Ovation's "The Fashion Fund", these designers have proven they are the next to watch in the men's clothing designer arena. 
But I certainly wasn't expecting them to conquer women's wear as well. 
A wardrobe full of black clothing walked down the runway with the occasional splatter of navy and burgundy. 
Men in capes, wide brim hats and leather harnesses. Kind of like Hedi Slimane meeting Christian Gray's closet.
Women in ski caps, herringbone and oxfords. 
The majority of clothing seemed interchangeable between sexes with exception to some dresses and fitted coats, or at least to me, it was. Makes it easier to see all at once rather than perusing the racks at H&M in the men's section. Can be harder than it seems. 
Anyways I digress.
With all this potential streaming out of them in their first runway show, it makes it hard not to notice Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne.
That $300,000 prize from CFDA was well spent.
